Life’s pleasures. Happiness can be divided in two catagories, according to psychologists. The first is the moment-to-moment happiness or the small spurts I get from everyday living, like digging into a dessert, receiving a compliment, or knitting a cloth.
These things are so easy to take for granted but they have a culmulative effect on my happiness that’s more powerful than the big events that WOW me.
Even the euphoric thrill of winning the lottery is fleeting. The newly rich revert to exactly how happy they were before hitting the jackpot. That’s ‘cuz small daily pleasures keeps us afloat. Today, I stop and focus on the little pleasures I am having at this very moment.
Life is hectic, there is no doubt, as I’m sure it is for you too. I logged into WP and found over 180 comments waiting to be plowed through…mostly spam. <sigh> At least, I have some new Be Sweet Bamboo in a rich spring color to drool over.
This has become a Garden Spring Tee which I will show more details soon.
What’s your creative plate?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
